Concerns raised about resort expansion
Pipelines of the Alberta government are about 2,000 kilometres from the coast. One such pipel더킹카지노ine is the Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline, which ran from Port Alberni in Saskatchewan to Steele City, Prince Albert, in northern Alberta. A portion of the pipe was never completed and is being constructed to replace it.
The pipeline will transport crude from the Bakken oilfields of North Dakota to Kitimat Bay in British Columbia. The area has deep reservoirs of the tar sands oil that contain more than half a billion barrels of natural gas.
“We have been very close to being in a position where we could sell the oil there and we really don’t have the capacity,” said Mark Horsford, an envi카지노 사이트ronmental scientist with the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, in a phone interview from Fort Chipewyan.
“Now we have this pipeline waiting to be built and they are asking for additional funding so they can add it right across the border.”
The federal government promised to review and upgrade its infrastructure on the northern border of Alberta to make sure it’s safe for oil companies to explore and drill. The government said its review would identify and prevent additional projects of this nature.
Oil sands development
The environmental impact studies and environmental assessment of the Enbridge Northern Gateway project began last year. The pipeline is already under construction and is expected to be completed in late 2015.
Alberta is the seventh province to have an oil sands pipeline approved for further development, following Alberta, British Columbia and Newfoundland and Labrador.
Pipeline proponents have said the oil sands could eventually generate an additional 2.2 million barrels카지노 사이트 of oil per day, about the same as Canada’s oilsands combined. The oil is already extracted on sites such as the Bakken formation, in northeastern Saskatchewan.
